THE MacBETH REPORT:
D Stefan Warg (Seattle, Prince Albert, 2008-10) signed a two-year contract with Västerås (Sweden, Allsvenskan). He had two goals and three assists in 51 games with Örebro (Sweden, Allsvenskan) this season.
THE COACHING GAME:
There was word early Monday that former NHLer Tom Rowe is going to be the head coach for Lokomotiv Yaroslavl of the KHL next season. Rowe is a scout with the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes. . . . I first saw a tweet on this from Russian hockey journalist Alessandro Seren Rosso (@AlexSerenRosso).
It turns out that Ty Rattie and Sven Bartschi of the Portland Winterhawks are as tight off the ice as they are on it. Jim Beseda of The Oregonian has that story right here.
The Moose Jaw Warriors have won six of their seven playoff games to this point. And they hold a 2-0 lead over the Medicine Hat Tigers in a second-round series. One of the reasons is discipline. Matthew Gourlie of the Moose Jaw Times-Herald reports right here that the Warriors have cut their penalty minutes in half over their regular-season totals.
Chris Rumble, who played for the NAHL’s Wenatchee Wild (2009-11), has been diagnosed with leukemia and has started treatment in a Seattle hospital. You may recognize Rumble’s name from the documentary ‘Into the Ice’ that he wrote and directed. It was the story of the Wild’s 2010-11 season. . . . If you would like to send Rumble a message, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. . . . There’s more right here.
